On Friday, September 11th, the football team traveled to Edmond to take on the Edmond Memorial Bulldogs. 

The Timberwolves’ first game was supposed to be the Crosstown Clash, however, due to Covid-19 cases involving Norman High’s football team, the most important game to the community was canceled. 

With just three minutes into the game, Chapman Mckown scored a rushing touchdown.  Not long after, Duncan Parham had a pick-six, and suddenly it was 13-0.

With just over a minute left in the first quarter, Jackson Remualdo handed the ball off to Gabe Trevillison for another rushing touchdown which put North up 20-0 at the end of the first quarter. Trevillison rushed for two touchdowns that put points on the board for the Timberwolves.

North’s defense was tough, but they were stingy, holding the Bulldogs to a defensive shutout. However, Remualdo threw a pick-six in the second quarter, accounting for Edmond’s only points. 

The score at the end of the first half was 27-7.

The Timberwolves continued to dominate the Bulldogs in the second half. North won the game 46-7.  Gavin Frakes got involved as well, and showed his potential as a quarterback.
